Two New Creatives Join Up with Johannes Leonardo

Mother alum Dave Tomkins (pictured right) and Scotland native Iain Nevill have joined NYC -based Johannes Leonardo as art director and copywriter, effective immediately. They will be reporting directly to co-founders Jan Jacobs and Leo Premutico.

Both come from interesting backgrounds across the Atlantic. Nevill launched Borne Magazine (a freebee mag you get at Urban and American Apparel). After starting the mag, he went on to work at S.C.P.F in Barcelona, where he worked on a bevy of brands including BMW, IKEA, & Vodafone, to name a few.

Tomkins on the other hand, seems to have a highly-awarded advertising background, coming from Clemenger BBDO Sydney, Happy Soldiers and Mother London, so at least he can hold up the team while they both get acclimated.

Congratulations to these two for getting American visas. I look forward to seeing more fresh work a la Daffy’s, from JL. No pressure, guys.

Google Creative Lab Debuts ‘Demo Slam’

To promote Google (like they need it) and the full suite of Google innovations, the search giant’s Creative Lab unit is launching “Demo Slam,” a new web platform created in partnership with Johannes Leonardo.

With Demo Slam, consumers can create their own Google tech demonstrations and engage in online battles that showcase Google’s latest innovations in creative and entertaining ways.

The purpose of this campaign is obviously to enhance consumer awareness and use of the entire arsenal of Google offerings such as the Google Translate, Google Realtime Search and Google Goggles, the last of which is used in the spot above that features a recreation of Mount Rushmore.

Johannes Leonardo co-founder Leo Premutico says in a statement, “By giving people an online arena to pit their tech demos against one another, Google is encouraging the public to not only have fun and get creative with technology, but also challenging them to rethink how it’s used in our lives.”

After the jump, view credits and another spot that ties skateboarding to the Google Mobile voice search feature.
